This unpretentious venue is perfect for those seeking a more intimate, relaxed viewing experience. On the campus of Santa Fe College of Art and Design, The Screen has excellent sound on a large screen without the commercialism of today's usual cinema experience. For those seeking the more unique, independent film experience, The Screen is well worth a visit! We thoroughly... More

Comfortable seating, excellent viewing and great films - what more could you want! This is like having your own private screening room. There does not seem to be a bad seat in the house. The Screen shows mostly indie films including premiere films from the NY Film Critics Live presentations. The staff is personable and there are great snacks as... More

I love the Screen and have been going there for years. The screen almost exclusively shows indie films not available for viewing elsewhere in Santa Fe, and often not available anywhere in Albuquerque. A fantastic service that the screen offers is a (free, of course) subscription to their weekly emails. The emails offer an excellent description of each film, a... More

The Screen provides mostly highly regarded Indie films that aren't shown anywhere else in town. You will find wholesome snacks, and great popcorn at the concession stand -- also, a fresh cup of Keurig coffee if you're in the mood. The seats are comfortably positioned like a stadium, so you never have a sight to screen problem. And the people... More

If you're into Indy films this is your place. Built in a former sound stage this theatre has top quality sound and projection systems. They also feature interesting filmsthat you're not going to see at your local multiplex. Note worthy is their HDlive performances from around the world including opera, dance and theatre. This is a much better venue then... More

The Screen is on the SFUAD campus. It houses the second largest green screen in the world and the set for Longmire. We did not get to see a production at The Screen, but we are looking forward to it. We did get to see the SFUAD Graphic Art's student's October Show just a walk from The Screen! Some incredible... More

My husband and I frequently watch films at The Screen which one might call an "art house". It shows award-winning movies from around the world, ones that are rarely shown at regular movie theaters. Most recently we saw "The Reluctant Fundamentalist". The theater not only offers excellent choices, but also has very comfortable seats and better-than-average snack choices. For out... More

This is an awesome independent cinema. The movies that are presented here are wonderful. The theater is very comfortable and the projection and sound outstanding. One could not ask for better!
